“Working smarter, not harder” is an old saying that I love and try to use in my daily life. The Fasst Company spoke torque wrench has made checking my spokes’ tension much easier and more accurate. The spoke torque wrench kit comes with 12 heads that fit all spoke nipples of all makes and models.

The Fasst wrench comes preset at 48 inch-pounds but can be adjusted from 10 to 100 inch-pounds. The wrench is easy to use, as you simply tighten your spoke until you hear/feel a click. A good rule of thumb is to tighten every third spoke, which will take you three revolutions of the wheel.

The guesswork of how much tension you are using on each spoke is gone, and I have kept my wheels trued longer than I have with a traditional spoke wrench. The handle is larger for an easy grip, and each head is wide and will not slip once on the spoke. You can even get a custom laser etching on the wrench for an extra $29.99, which of course I did for the cool factor.

The Fasst Company torque spoke wrench is expensive at just over $255 (for the wrench and all 12 heads), but it can be used for every bike in your stable. If you don't need all 12 heads and you just want the wrench, it is $99.99; and one head will be $12.99. This is the best investment I have in my toolbox. —Kris Keefer
